As we noted in last week’s newsletter, the White House has unveiled a plan for “Opening Up America Again” and Governor Andrew Cuomo detailed a two-phase plan to begin reopening New York. Is your business ready to re-open when workplace restrictions issued in response to the COVID-19 crisis are eventually lifted?
Last week, a multi-disciplinary team of Hurwitz & Fine attorneys presented a Webinar for the Amherst Chamber of Commerce entitled “Rebound Your Business: What You Should Know” which explored the employment and other financial issues that businesses should be planning for as they return to work and “normal” operations.
The presentation covered the following issues:
- CDC guidance on reopening workplaces during the COVID-19 Pandemic
- Screening employees for COVID-19
- Tips for calling employees back to work
- Developing a plan to reopen
- Best practices for the Paycheck Protection Program
- Other loan programs and grants available to small businesses
You can access the PowerPoint slides at the Amherst Chamber of Commerce website. Of course, please remember that we are not providing legal advice in these slides and the general information on these subjects is rapidly evolving. If you are interested in having our team present to your group, we would be happy to collaborate.
